Our Community Partners
We reach out to refugee and immigrant youth by partnering with organizations that already offer a spectrum of other services to these communities. We engage with these partners in an effort to understand the special circumstances, needs, and creative interests of their clients, while we develop our art programs.
If you are an organization serving youth from refugee and immigrant communities, and you would be interested in bringing our creative art programs to your clients, please get in touch!
We are currently partnered with the following organizations:
Center For Empowering Refugee and Immigrants (CERI)
CERI is a grassroots, non-profit organization founded in 2005 by a small group of bilingual/bicultural mental health professionals. It is dedicated to providing culturally competent mental health and other social services to refugee and immigrant families with multiple layers of complex needs, exposure to violence and trauma both in their current environment and in their native countries, and weakening intergenerational relationships. ARTogether offers various arts and crafts workshops for CERI’s client in Oakland, CA.
International Rescue Committee (IRC)
The International Rescue Committee provides opportunities for refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, survivors of torture, and other immigrants to thrive in America. The IRC works with government bodies, civil society actors, and local volunteers to help them translate their past experiences into assets that are valuable to their new communities. In Oakland and other offices across the country, the IRC helps them to rebuild their lives. ARTogether is partnered with IRC and provides art workshop in their summer camps in Oakland, CA.
